Nanotechnology powered programmable matter could create 3-D representations of almost any object
Here is a visionary project from the claytronics team at Carnegie Mellon to tickle your mind during Turkey Day.
This project combines modular robotics, systems nanotechnology and computer science to create the dynamic, 3-Dimensional display of electronic information.
Imagine a lump of clay which comprises hundreds of thousands of microscopic particles. Each particle contains a computer that enables all of them to move together and form representations of objects and even people in three-dimensional space. This is claytronics, an amazing new technology for the display of information, being created at Carnegie Mellon University.
